"Wow, the weather is going mad here!"

"Same here. I call it 'global weirding'!"

"How's the Global.org summit going?"

"Well, everyone's preoccupied with the global economic crisis. And your holiday?"

"Not quite what I expected… Hey, maybe the summit should focus on the environment instead."

"What makes you say that?"
